  • Originally founded in 1807 by <b>Jean Boingnères </b>it has for six generations steadfastly maintained the often difficult path of never producing anything but the best <b>armagnac</b>s. Today Martine Lafitte carries on the Boingnères tradition of excellence. The Boingnères armagnacs are distilled to 52% (allowing the maximum of congeners to pass over into the spirit) and then aged in a very specific manner. Half of the new spirit is put into new charred casks of local oak—up to 15 casks per year—and aged for two years, before it is transferred to older wood. The other half goes into two year-old barrels where it remains until required for blending and bottling. No blending of vintages is done after the sixth year and the separate varieties are carefully watched until Martine Lafitte decides which proportion to blend together, or if the spirits should remain separate.
